[liberationtech] wordpress.com extracts the S from https (update)

Frank,

Maybe you should request help via twitter. @raanan is very helpful and when
you first posted this issue I asked him about it on twitter, he responded to
me very quicly, but unfortunately I don't know your exact situation.
Everything I have heard on the twitter feeds from him and others is that
there is no reason for this issue to be occurring. They need further direct
explanation in order to assist, I was hoping you would follow up with them.

I suggest you contact wordpress.com support directly, or reach out to
@raanan depending on the forums is not going to be your best bet if you
really want to get this fixed.

good luck

Brian
